About the Chorus
The Texas Country Gentlemen chorus is the home of Barbershop Harmony for central Texas and has entertained audiences throughout the region for almost two decades. Its members come from all over central Texas — Temple, Waco, Killeen, Georgetown, Cameron, Gatesville and more — men who like to sing, and who have fun doing it. The chorus has won multiple awards in Barbershop Harmony Society contests, presents sold-out annual dinner shows, and often performs at community events around the area.
